Week three in Ross football history....1941


Week three of the 1941 football season saw the Little Giants travel to Fostoria for a Buckeye League contest against the Redmen. Ross handed Fostoria a 27-0 loss, the worst defeat a Fremont team handed one from Fostoria in a number of years to that point.
The Purple and White scored on four long offensive drives, the shortest of which was 37 yards.
Ross was led by team captain Bob Hall along with Ed Fox and Jim Wisbon. The three of them headed up a Little Giant offense that scored on drives of 64, 59, 47 and 37 yards. Fostoria meantime had just one scoring opportunity which came as a result of a Little Giant fumble on their own 41. Fostoria drove to the Ross 12 but their drive was snuffed out by an interception by Elmer Nickle.
Ross almost scored a fifth TD very late in the contest when Lantz block a Redmen punt and The Little Giants took over in Fostoria territory. The drive stalled however, and the game ended 27-0 in the Fremonters favor.
